Methamphetamine Detox And Treatment Centers In Quebec

The hardest thing with a methamphetamine addict is to convince them that they need to get treated for their addiction. The addict usually insists that they do not have a problem, or they ignore the situation altogether. The only way to force an addict to get help is if they break a law and the court makes the methamphetamine detox and treatment a part of their therapy. Otherwise, it has to be the addict's choice to get help.

The reason an addict cannot really be forced into methamphetamine treatment is that if they are not receptive to the treatment, it will not work. They will simply go through the motions and then, when they are released, they will start using the methamphetamine again.

When an addict accepts that they have a problem and that they need to get help, they are first going to have to be admitted into one of Quebec's drug detox programs where they will be watched over by a well-trained and experienced staff while their body goes through the methamphetamine withdrawal symptoms. The staff will do everything possible to make sure the addict stays safe during this difficult time.

When the individual has completed the methamphetamine detox program, they will be moved into one of Quebec's many residential rehabilitation programs. The exact type of methamphetamine treatment the addict gets will depend largely on the type of program they enroll in. Quebec has many government-funded programs where the addict gets twenty-eight days of cognitive behavior therapy and is also strongly encouraged to participate in a follow-up outpatient program that can last up to three months. Residents can choose to enroll in a private program as well. Quebec's privately funded drug rehab programs provide alternative solutions, including combinations of holistic alternatives, cognitive behavior therapy, and 12 step group programs for treating a methamphetamine addiction and usually require longer stays.

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed.

This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation.
